Semex tops the UK Proven Holstein lists

Semex tops the UK Proven Holstein lists

The August UK proof run has returned the No.1 Available UK Proven PLI bull and the No.1 proven Available UK Type bull. Semex continue to deliver on UK farms with progeny that are outperforming their herd contemporaries.

Taking the number one position on the Available UK proven PLI list is Westcoast YAMASKA at £776. His sire Sandy-Valley Afterburner holds the No.3 spot. On the Available proven UK Type lists, Gen-I-Beq ATTICO, with more daughters added to his proof, retains his number one status with +3.58 UKTM.

Turning to the Genomic lists, the Semex Genomic sires continue the legacy of their proven stablemates with Semex’s Progenesis MAHOMES and Siemers BRAVE ranking No 6 and No 9 respectively on PLI. 3 Star OH RANGER RED continues to be the No.1 genomic red bull ranked on PLI. On Type, Claynook DAILY ranks in third place with a UKTM of +2.85.

“Today’s proof results are great,” says Owain Harries, International Sales Manager at Semex. “To have the number one sire on both the Available UK proven PLI and Available UK proven Type list is fantastic. YAMASKA, however, is more than just PLI. He offers exceptional components at +0.22% BF and +0.16% Protein, with over 600 Kgs Milk and boasts a robust linear with 1.85 UKTM, 1.39 Legs & Feet and 1.52 Mammary”.

Owain concludes, “We have always been confident in our genomic program so it’s gratifying to see our bulls continue to deliver on UK farms in UK conditions.”
